About Hiver
Hiver provides intelligent networking technology designed to improve event-goer's experience and engagement at events by enhancing the way attendees interact with each other. Hiver solves the issue of name forgetting at events - which 80% of event goers report experiencing. This two-minute video shows the technology in action at one of our previous events. As users interact, anonymous data from these improved interactions is presented to the event organiser so they can better understand the composition and quality of the event, giving them the tools to improve event by event as well as quantitatively market the engagement of their event over other conferences.Hiver was a part of London Business School and Deloitte Incubator and of Google Best in British Campus Exchange.
